The library will be celebrating its 120th Anniversary this Saturday Feb 28th from 12 Noon until 2pm. As you can see from the picture of our charter, that is the exact date on which we became incorporated as a library, making us one of the oldest in the Capital Region. Join us on Saturday, where we will debut a slideshow of snapshots from some 50 years of library memories, debut a new exhibit in our display case and so much more! Refreshments will be served and library lovers from near and far are most welcome. For more information please contact the library at 237-0891.

The library will be closed on Monday January 19th for the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. As a result, no materials will be due that day. We will reopen on Tuesday Jan 20th for regular business hours. May we suggest that you take this opportunity to go see the Oscar nominated film Selma?
